“On behalf of my sister and I, thank you so much for putting this workshop together. We definitely learned a lot; there are so many differences between weapons, for example. I have only attended one self-defense class (when I worked for County of Riverside as a social worker) and it did not entail all these details. We truly look forward to another workshop in the future. We are thinking of bringing our other sister as well as our mother. I definitely recommend it to everyone else out there who didn’t have a chance to join today. I don’t recall a time when my younger sister and I ever had a chance to roughhouse the way we did today. LOL Definitely a “sister date” to remember. We had so much fun! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion with us.. Most importantly, for sharing your WHY.” – Linda Ramona
